  • What our students have to say...

    I could not have asked for a more wonderful undergraduate experience at UVM, and the Microbiology and Molecular Genetics department has been the key to my success. Being part of the MMG program has made my undergraduate experience very fun and motivating. I could not have asked for better advising - my advisor sought out almost all of the programs and internships I was part of, and was crucial to my success in applying to medical school. I have also been so fortunate to have had the experience to work with an amazing research mentor in the MMG department. My undergraduate research experience has allowed me to not only learn research techniques, but I have also learned how to display and write up this data in the form of a manuscript for publication. I have had the amazing experience of presenting this manuscript at an international conference. Looking back, I could not have envisioned a more amazing four years, and the MMG department has fully motivated me to achieve my future aspirations.
